SAFE and the Angels Initiative support World Stroke Day on 29 October. We recognise the importance of learning the symptoms of stroke and the importance of urgent access to appropriate medical care as minutes can save lives.
The Angels Initiative supports the provision of patient information to help patients, their families and carers understand their condition, be more actively involved in their treatment decisions and learn more about the important next steps to recovery. The materials are available in 15 languages and can be found at www.safestroke.eu/safe-angels-initiative/
The Angels Initiative is a non-commercial healthcare project dedicated to improving stroke patients’ chance of survival and living a disability-free life. The Initiative has enabled multi-disciplinary stroke teams around the world to access education, standardisation tools, consultancy, community and quality monitoring processes that enable them to act faster to minimise the burden of stroke on patients’ lives.
